WESTMINSTER, CO – January 26, 2017 – Skywriter MD, which provides physicians with a real-time Virtual Medical Scribe Service, has received 2017 Healthcare Informatics Innovator Award. Skywriter MD’s Westminster-based Sky Center delivers virtual Electronic Medical Record (EMR) assistance to physicians and physician’s assistants across the country, helping them navigate the EMR, locate information for review, enter structured information into the EMR, research data, and respond to messages as directed. The improved productivity increases the revenue of practices, and/or supports larger patient loads with the same number of providers. In addition, by offloading clerical tasks, physicians spend more time interacting with patients, which improves care quality and directly contributes to greater job satisfaction.

The Healthcare Informatics Innovator Awards Program recognizes leadership teams from patient care organizations—hospitals, medical groups, integrated health systems, and other healthcare organizations—that have effectively deployed information technology in order to improve clinical, administrative, financial, or organizational performance.

“I’m very proud of the value we are delivering to over-worked physicians, the simple elegance of our solution, and the market demand we are generating,” said Tracy Rue, Skywriter MD Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased to be making such a contribution to the innovative knowledge of our clinicians, as well as the quality of healthcare across the country.”

Skywriter MD leadership will attended 2017 HIMSS national conference in Orlando, Fla. Our organization’s leaders will be prominently featured in the Healthcare Informatics January 2017 issue, including photos on the cover page of print and digital issues, plus honored at the prestigious Healthcare Informatics Innovator Awards Reception at HIMSS17 – Feb 21.
